January 25, 2024 – TABI Announcement


We received our shipment of Blue Ribbons as part of the #BlueRibbonsforIsrael campaign. Ribbons are in the temple office and available on a first come first served basis. They will also be available on Shabbat.  You can read about other ways you can participate in this campaign at this site: https://www.blueribbonsforisrael.org/

Let’s all pray that each and every hostage is released safely and soon.

Mostly Kosher Performance for the Under the Beams Concert Series and Dinner at Say’s Restaurant – Saturday, March 16th.  Performance at 7:30pm.  Dinner before (time TBD). MOSTLY KOSHER, the acclaimed Klezmer/Rock band, radically reconstructs Judaic and American cultural music through ravenous klezmer beats and arresting Yiddish refrains. Mostly Kosher is a musical feast that explodes into a global food-fight of Jazz, Latin, Rock, and Folk.

The band’s self-titled debut album has won international acclaim by World Music Network, Songlines Magazine, and BBC radio. The first track, Ikh Hob Dikh Tsufil Lib (I Love You Much Too Much), was recognized as one of World Music Network’s Top 6 Songs of 2014. Mostly Kosher’s music videos have been garnering accolades on the film festival circuit, receiving two nominations at the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema and Best Music Video at the Glendale International Film Festival. 2021 will mark the indie film debut of Mostly Kosher, as they will be featured in the wedding scene of the upcoming feature film, “The Accursed”, starring Izabela Vidovic and Melora Walters.

Family Game Night at TABI – Saturday, April 13th at 5:00PM

Let’s shake off the winter blues and spring into party mode!  Bring your favorite game & appetizer or dessert and join us at TABI for a night of friendly competition and fun!  Pizza and beverages will be provided but please bring an appetizer/snack or dessert.  We will have game tables for kids and adults.  If you have a favorite game, please be prepared to be the game master for that table.   ​

TABI is excited to announce the restarting of the Women’s Torah study beginning at the beginning with B’reishit. Join fellow congregants as we bring the women of the Torah into the limelight and bring women’s perspectives into the interpretation of our sacred text.  These “lay lead” study sessions will be held before Saturday morning services, allowing us to bring new perspectives and enriching the discussions during regular Shabbat services.

Thank you to those who have helped restock the grocery and gas cards for our Give One Take One program. We always can use more, so please think of those who are in the need the next time you go to the store or the gas station and perhaps pick up one $20.00 card to donate. The baskets are located on the wall next to the Rabbi’s office.


For the past many years, our worship has been streaming on LiveStream. Each week, a link is created and sent out via email and our channel is also accessible via our website. Livestream and Vimeo have merged and they are doing away with basic plans like ours. The cost to continue our service is now prohibitive.

For the foreseeable future, our service will now stream on the TABI Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100064549665595
